My ability to connect with my clients, most of whom become good friends
What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Meet your suppliers! Email and social media is amazing these days but having an opportunity to meet someone who's going to be there on your big day is so important. It works both ways too as face to face I cannot hide my enthusiasm and I love meeting potential couples!
What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?
Thanked by the groom in his speech, it was like being surrounded by family. A lovely gesture and very humbling.
Describe your typical process with a couple.
Correspondence first then a face to face meeting. A follow up and a visit to the venue/s if necessary.
Then the big day! Then I get to work on the post production of the photographs before digital delivery and hopefully another meeting with the newlyweds. Most of my clients I keep in touch with and they happily pass on my details to new couples
What is the No. 1 photo that you think every couple should take?
The kiss! Honestly, time alone with just the bride and groom during the whirlwind of a wedding is such a gift. It's where you can really see the emotion and the love that's palpable between them. One of my favourite moments in the wedding day and a wonderful thing to capture
What is the most original photo you’ve been asked to take at a wedding?
All the guests spiralled around a staircase that seemed to go on forever! The groom said it was a "thing" he and his mates always do but wanted this time to get everyone in. It took a while and required some squishing and patience but the shot worked!
What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?
I always try to find an alternative indoor location at the venue in case it rains, I've only needed it a couple of times. We went back out inbetween the April showers!
Describe how you got into photography.
My background was in writing and directing films before switching to still images, working with a camera is just something I know how to do - framing and composition come naturally to me and that coupled with a gift for anticipation make this the perfect profession for me. Plus I'm passionate about people and love capturing hidden emotions and moments that last a second but can be relived forever through a photograph.
